    I met with my professor today, to go over my projects, and talk about my future. We chatted for about 25 minutes, and in the end, he told me my grade.

    I got an A! Woo hoo!

    I'm taking Color Photography next semester and I'm really looking forward to it. I'm hoping to shoot some 4x5 Velvia through my Crown Graphic :)

    Ok, no more coffee for me today :p

    BIG congrats on the A, Matt! :cheer:

    But I agree with Mark: anything less would have been surprising. ;) I'm sure your teacher enjoyed having someone with your talent as a student.

    Knew you could do it Matt, congratulations. How old is your Crown Graphic. You'll enjoy shooting 5x4. Philip.

    Thanks everyone :) My wife, who was taking the class with me, got an A too :p

    Philip: I have no idea how old my Crown is. It was given to me as payment for services from the digital lab I use. The guy got rid of all his old film eq. He gave me an 8x10 view camera as well. Too bad the film is so expensive :p

    I'm obviously much older than you are Matt, and had the immense benefit of growing up with film, and shooting most of my work on 5x4, and for something extra special shot on 10x8. I have spent many enjoyable hours under my black cloth concentrating on the ground glass. Compared with digital it's like planning your shot on a TV screen. I believe Digital and Photoshop has reduced the quality of the current batch of photographers and final images. I would often spend a full day working on a single still-life image. I learnt very early to aim for perfection in the initial image, but Photoshop has made many photographers lazy knowing they can fix a problem in Photoshop. I do it myself, but only when I know I can spend an hour fixing a problem with my lighting that I can fix in Photoshop in 30 seconds. Didn't mean to rave on, sorry about that.
    Congratulations to you wife as well....:thumbup:

    Matt, Matt, Matt,

    If you have the 8x10 lens and film holder, shoot some black and white paper in it. It will make a very acceptable negative and is super cheap to shoot. Rate it as iso 5 and have fun with it.

    Congrats by the way.
